The 18th season of "Big Brother" wraps up Sept. 21, 2016, after a record-long 99-day season! But where have your favorite former winners ended up? Wonderwall.com tracked down the most memorable winners from seasons past — who went home $500,000 richer — starting with Rachel Reilly. Perhaps the most polarizing houseguest in "Big Brother" history, Rachel first appeared on "Big Brother 12." Though she didn't win that season, she did find love with fellow contestant Brendon Villegas. After the show wrapped, Rachel decided to return the following season for the all-star show, which she did win — despite not being well-liked by her fellow houseguests. So where is Rachel today? Keep reading to find out!

Let's hear it for the superfans! Steve Moses won Season 17 of "Big Brother" — after having the slight advantage of being a longtime dedicated viewer of the reality competition.
Ah, Mike "Boogie" Malin, the veteran from Season 2. This partner of the Dolce Group — which operated many now-defunct Los Angeles hotspots — was the somewhat slimy backstabber who returned to the show as a member of Season 7's all-star cast and surprisingly won.
Shortly after the Season 7 wrapped, Mike "Boogie" Malin found himself in trouble with the law. In October 2007, he was charged with assault after attending the World Series and spent 15 hours in jail before being released (hence the mugshot). But despite the legal drama, he wasn't quite done with "Big Brother" yet. Mike later returned to the house for Season 14, where he acted as a mentor and coach. Mike filed for bankruptcy in 2015 after he found himself $23 million dollars in debt.
Dr. Will Kirby took home the top prize during Season 2 back in 2001 and is considered one of the best contestants in the history of the show. The dermatologist never won a Head of Household or Power of Veto competition during his stint, which he claimed was part of his strategy. He also competed on the all-star Season 7, which his alliance member and close pal Mike "Boogie" Malin won.
"Big Brother 8" was the most scandalous season to date, serving up a great twist. Within the house, many of the houseguests had surprise connections. And even though "Evel Dick" Donato was under the same roof as his estranged daughter Daniele Donato, he managed to win that season.
"Evel Dick" Donato returned to the show along with his daughter, Daniele, as his teammate for Season 13. A week in, Evel Dick left the house stating that he had to take care of "an urgent personal matter." In 2014, that personal matter surfaced: While appearing on "Couples Therapy" with girlfriend Stephanie Rogness-Fischer, the bar manager revealed that he had been living with HIV since 2011, when the "Big Brother" producers revealed that his blood work came back as HIV positive. He believes that he contracted the disease after having unprotected sex with a woman.
Do you remember Season 12 winner Hayden Moss? You know, that odd hippie surfer dude? He won by a vote of 4 to 3, but you won't believe what he looks like now!
The man formerly known as as "The Animal" by his "Big Brother" alliance has cleaned up well! In 2013, Hayden Moss joined the cast of "Survivor: Blood vs. Water," but didn't come out victorious on that reality game show. Hayden remains a steadfast "Big Brother" fan and keeps up on the show via his active Twitter account.
Jordan Lloyd was the country cutie who not only won Season 11 but found love with houseguest Jeff Schroeder.
Amputee Eddie McGee was the winner of the very first season of "Big Brother" in 2000.
Eddie McGee graduated from the small screen after winning the inaugural season of the show and followed his acting dreams. He most recently co-starred in the 2013 flick "The Human Race."
Andy Herren (left) came out on top during "Big Brother" Season 15 and became the show's first openly gay winner. Andy has the distinction of winning on the show's most controversial season ever, as four different contestants found themselves in trouble for making comments ranging from racist to anti-Semitic to homophobic remarks. Andy was among those four and was fired from his job as a college professor after referring to eliminated house guests as "robotic biracials" and discussing his desire to punch a female contestant in the throat.
It's pretty rare to be a universally loved "Big Brother" houseguest — which made contestant Derrick Levasseur such an anomaly. Since he never crossed his fellow houseguests and played a very clean game, it was no surprise that the police officer was declared the winner of the show for its 16th season.
Dan Gheesling flew under the radar during "Big Brother 10," which ended up being a good thing! He never had a vote cast against him during his time on the show, and he won by a unanimous 7 to 0 vote.
